Review :: Total Control :: Henge Beat

Another one I'm coming to late here, but thanks be to Josh at Red Onion for turning me on to it before it completely passed me by. Been a longtime fan of Eddy Current Suppression Ring and the UV Race and it's no surprise that this collaborative side-project of the Aussie garage punk makes some great noise. My imagined garage rock workshop Down Under has all of these guys working an assembly line together, spooling together meters and meters of CrO2 with their tiny little hands.

From the Iron Lung Records site:
The combination of all their previous work and a steady live band has come together to form the great Henge Beat LP. Beautifully housed in a bright European-art-designed gatefold sleeve. These guys have outdone themselves with this one. Musically it rests somewhere between late 70's UK new wave a-la Ha Ha Ha era ULTRAVOX and the "now sound" EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING Aussie garage that we all know and love. Add a dash of hopeful Krautrock flavor and the recipe is a smashing success. We could not be happier to offer this perfect execution to you. 
Swing by Red Onion and pick up your copy like I did or, if your xenophobia's acting up, stay in your . Alas, 2011 must have been a good year. Too bad I drank it all
